Eagles signed UNLV WR Devante Davis.

Davis (6'3/220) was physically dominant in the Mountain West, parlaying 186 career catches into 2,785 yards (15.0 YPR) and 22 TDs. Davis would've reset the UNLV record books had he not missed five games with a wrist injury as a senior. Davis profiles similarly to Dwayne Bowe in his prime with 4.57 speed, a 35 1/2-inch vertical, and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. A top-notch ball tracker with sure hands, Davis has all the traits of a contributing NFL receiver with deceptive vertical ability. He is DFS aficionado Davis Mattek's favorite wideout in the 2015 class.

Eagles signed UNLV G/T Brett Boyko.

Boyko (6'6/301) was a 41-game starter as the Rebels' blind-side protector, earning second-team All-Mountain West as a junior and senior. Short armed (32") with relatively small hands (9") considering his frame, Boyko is also a pedestrian mover, clocking a 5.60 forty in Indianapolis with an 8-foot-7 broad jump and painful 7.91 short shuttle time. Boyko is short on length, athleticism, and strength. He's going to have a tough time in the pros.

UNLV and former Washington DL Josh Shirley recently visited the Seahawks.

The Seahawks seems to be searching for day three options along the defensive line, or at least prospects others evaluate in that range. Shirley tested in the 66th percentile for athleticism among NFL edge rushers, something Seattle looks for at the position.
Apr 20 - 9:46 AM

UNLV senior WR DeVante Davis ran a 4.48 second 40-yard dash at his pro day that scouts amended to 4.53 to accommodate a heavy tailwind.

Davis has been hampered by a balky hamstring since the Senior Bowl. "Davis felt the hamstring tighten up during the first attempt and chose not to run again," noted Tony Pauline. "Despite the tightening hamstring, he looked good in pass-catching drills." Davis posted a broad jump of 10-1, six inches better than his combine showing. Pauline reported during the season that Davis "has been stamped anywhere from a mid-to-late round prospect by scouts."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that UNLV senior OT Brett Boyko is "still developing at the position."

"Boyko is an interesting player. High School QB/DE in Canada, never played a down on the OL until he got to UNLV. Still developing at the position," Brugler tweeted. The 6-foot-7, 310-pound Boyko has the frame to add on more bulk in an NFL weight room and has the potential to be a late Day 3 pick in the 2015 draft.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that Las Vegas high school coach Tony Sanchez will be named the next UNLV head coach.

If you're going to go the high school route, it's nice to have the coach of the program ranked No. 1 nationally in your backyard. Sanchez, the head coach of Bishop Gorman High School, has a 85-5 record at the school and has won six consecutive Division I state titles. In addition, Sports Illustrated reported Sanchez is connected to the Las Vegas business community and is expected to help the school's fundraising efforts.

UNLV senior WR DeVante Davis accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl.

Davis has only played in eight games this season due to injury, but has recorded a respectable 34 receptions for 599 yards and four touchdowns. He comes with outstanding size (6-foot-3, 209 pounds) and enough wheels to make defenses pay. TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported recently that Davis "has been stamped anywhere from a mid-to-late round prospect by scouts."

UNLV senior OT Brett Boyko accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

The 6-foot-7, 310-pound Boyko has the frame to add far more bulk in an NFL weight room. Last month, Mark Anderson of the Las Vegas Review Journal told NFLDraftGM that Boyko is a "strong NFL prospect." We see a late Day 3 pick.

UNLV senior WR DeVante Davis caught five passes for 51 yards in Saturday's loss to BYU.

Earlier in the week, TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline had praised Davis' for coming back strongly from an early-season wrist injury. The wrist problem cost the receiver five games. Davis caught six passes for 114 yards and a touchdown in his return against Air Force a week ago. Davis wasn't quite as dominant against BYU, but he's a wideout to watch down the stretch. Pauline pegged Davis as a mid-to-late round selection.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline observed that UNLV senior WR DeVante Davis "has returned with a vengeance" from a wrist injury.

Davis had missed five games in a row with the wrist injury, but came back on Saturday against Air Force to put up 114 yards on six receptions. He also caught a touchdown in the game. Pauline called him a "big-bodied wideout" at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds. The senior "has been stamped anywhere from a mid-to-late round prospect by scouts," according to the analyst.

UNLV senior WR DeVante Davis caught six passes for 114 yards and a touchdown on Saturday.

Davis had missed the previous five games with an injury to his right wrist, but he looked in mid-season form against Air Force. Davis' long catch in the game went for 48 yards and he averaged almost twenty every time he caught the ball. Because the senior missed so many games this season, he's at a disadvantage in terms of scouting for the next level. Back in the summer, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler said that Davis "looks the part" and "sustains speed well." UNLV hasn't had a draft pick since 1995.

UNLV HC Bobby Hauck would not update the status of senior WR DeVante Davis, who is dealing with a right wrist injury.

Davis dressed for the Utah State game but did not play. That means Davis has missed the last four contests, but recorded 268 yards and two touchdowns on 17 receptions in the four games before that.

UNLV senior WR DeVante Davis is listed as questionable for this week's game against San Jose State due to a wrist injury.

Davis only managed one reception for no yards last week before exiting with the injury. Prior to that, Davis caught 16 receptions for 268 yards and two touchdowns. Many will love Davis' size throughout the draft process, but the question is if he uses it in a positive way.
Wed, Sep 24, 2014 10:32:00 AM

UNLV senior WR DeVante Davis hauled in eight catches for 100 yards in the school's 58-13 loss to Arizona.

Davis hauled in a nice 24 yard deep in, leaving his feet and hands catching the ball without hesitation. The senior followed it up with another contested grab for a 26 yard gain in the third quarter. That is where the receiver wins, so Davis will need to show those skills every week.
